Roy Hodgson may drop John Terry from Euro 2012 squad to keep Rio Ferdinand on side
Chelsea defender John Terry risks losing out on a place in England's Euro 2012 23-man squad, according to The Daily Mail.
Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson is reportedly reluctant to pick the 31-year-old because of his strained relationship with Rio Ferdinand.
Four centre backs are typically named in a squad for a major tournament and under normal circumstances there would be space for both Terry and the Manchester United defender.
However, the fact that Terry faces a trial after Euro 2012 relating to claims that he racially abused Ferdinand’s brother Anton earlier this season has left Hodgson reportedly concerned that picking both in his squad could result in a bad atmosphere in the camp.
Hodgson is expected to speak to both players to gauge their thoughts ahead of naming his squad, but the manager is likely to favour Ferdinand should it be decided that there is only space for one of them.
